Hey guys, i was thinking about getting a Corksport exhaust for my 2.0L 3 and i know that there are a few options on corksport when purchasing.I found out about what a catalyst does and such and I was curious for those who are here in illinois, what exhuast you may have purchased or would recommend purchasing.

Is it okay to just get the regular version (no racepipe,not high flow catalyst) or just race pipe or do i have to go with the high flow catalyst as well?

Thanks in advance :)

Do you have emissions or inspections?

If not you will be okay just be careful of sound laws. The 2nd cat isn't monitored so you will not get a CEL so you should pass inspection with the first cat on the header. But, I'm unfamiliar with the laws but I'd thought I'd give some insight

We have emissions testing. I forget how many years it is but my car is 4 years old and i had one in the summer this year i believe.

That means you cannot do the racepipe or high flow catalyst. Well you can try the high flow cat but I'm not sure how strict emissions is in your area. Just to be safe I'd just run the cat-back but you have to cut your stock exhaust before the cat for the Corksport.
